On Friday morning I was invited around to my friend Kelly's house for morning tea. I just had to pop in my camera so I could share with you a few photos from her gorgeous home. Kelly's home is just like her - warm, inviting and full of love. Kelly and her husband Gavin, a photographer, have three young boys and their home is a place where beautiful artwork and Gavin's amazing framed photos sit quite happily alongside the kids' colourful paintings and toys.
Kelly has recently been bitten by the thrifting bug and now likes nothing better than discovering second hand bargains and either enjoying their old patina just as it is or transforming them with a lick of paint to fit into rooms.
|We love how cheerful and stylish these National Geographic spines look with the vase of lemons and cute vintage tin.|
|A mix of browns and black and lots of different textures creates a great curl-up corner of Kelly's lounge room.|
|Sweet little succulants in old tea cups add a quirky touch.|
|Funky lights above the dining table.|
|Three colourful Stokke chairs for Kelly's three beautiful boys.|
The perfect way to store drawing materials on the cupboards in the dining room.
|Who doesn't love a chalkboard to write up shopping lists and important dates and to keep the kids amused?|
|A wall of photos taken of the 3 boys each year of their life. Such a great way to see how they grow and compare similarities and differences!|
|The beautiful restful master bedroom. The doily on the chair is one of many that Kelly has inherited from her Grandmother. She plans to have a selection of them framed.|
A great mix of pretty things.
|A stylish and practical room for a boy.|
|Who needs a bookshelf when you can display favourite stories in an old suitcase?|
|The cool headdress was purchased on an overseas holiday.|
Thank you Kelly for a scrummy monring tea and for letting me photograph your house. I could hang out in in your beautiful home all day!
